If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel please complete the attached Travel Vaccination form and either submit electronically or bring into the surgery. The Nurses will then check your medical records and the destinations you are travelling to and work out if you need any vaccinations. Reception will then contact you in order to make an appointment for the vaccinations.
Please do not book an appointment without having the results of your Travel Vaccines Questionnaire confirmed as the nurses do need time to confirm all details and ensure we have the required vaccinations in stock.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below:
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
The following vaccines will have to be paid for regardless of whether you have your vaccinations at your GP surgery or a private travel clinic:
Hepatitis B, Meningitis C and other meningitis vaccines, Japanese encephalitis, Rabies, tick-borne encephalitis or tuberculosis.
You will also need to pay for any Malaria treatments you require.
